Maryland's Point Lookout State Park in Scotland, Md. is one of the finest parks in the Eastern Seabord of the US. It combines a large assortment of spacious and attractive camping spots in several different loops.....some with electricity and water hookups and all with commodius toilet and shower facilities. Two of the loops....Greens and Hoffmans even feature piers at which to dock your boat during your stay.!!.....there is an excellent boat launching facility with extensive parking and a separate fishing pier for those who wish to fish from shore. The park occupies the entire end of a penninsula at the entrance of the Potomac rive to the Chesapeake Bay. There is a lighthouse at the tip of the penninsula which can be visited on certain days and plenty of parking nearby to enjoy the vista of the river on one side and the bay on the other. There is also a Civil War Memorial on the grounds commemorating the prisoner of war camp. A large picnic area with access to a large protected beach for swimming also occupies the park. Be forewarned that all this beauty comes with a bevy of bugs and plenty of summer heat so gazebo's with mosquito netting will be much appreciated!
